"The aspects of the book related to the philosophy of science and cognitive science (inductive and deductive reasoning, biases, and heuristics) are distilled in reasonable and useful ways. I recommend this book to those addiction professionals who want to create their own framework for ethical decision making." --PsycCRITIQUES Ethical decision-making is required in many of the difficult situations faced by addiction professionals. In this guide, Michael Taleff describes how to integrate critical thinking with ethical decision-making. This is a guide not on "what to do" when confronted with difficult ethical dilemmas, but on how to think about what to do. The author presents common ethical dilemmas that addiction professionals face in their daily work--such as boundary issues, confidentiality, dual relationships, and more--and asks readers to consider their own responses to these dilemmas. The book then shows readers how to apply new models of ethical thinking to practice. Key features: Presents an ethical self-exam to encourage critical thinking about one's own decision-making method Introduces a variety of models such as the social contract theory, existentialist theory, and ethical egoism Discusses how biases, emotional reactions, and fallacies can weaken ethical decision-making Presents an introductory "Ethics Judgment Kit," a simple, practical decision-making procedure for students This book demonstrates how critical thinking skills can impact and improve the process of ethical decision-making.

'BRILLIANT' Chris Evans, Virgin Radio Breakfast Show When was the last time you listened to someone, or someone really listened to you? This life-changing book will transform your conversations forever. At work, we're taught to lead the conversation. On social media, we shape our personal narratives. At parties, we talk over one another. So do our politicians. We're not listening. And no one is listening to us. Now more than ever, we need to listen to those around us. New York Times contributor Kate Murphy draws on countless conversations she has had with everyone from priests to CIA interrogators, focus group moderators to bartenders, her great-great aunt to her friend's toddler, to show how only by listening well can we truly connect with others. Listening has the potential to transform our relationships and our working lives, improve our self-knowledge, and increase our creativity and happiness. While it may take some effort, it's a skill that can be learnt and perfected. When all we crave is to understand and be understood, You're Not Listening shows us how. * With a new afterword by the author * 'This book couldn't be more timely.
